Visited last night to celebrate our son's birthday with friends. Food was plentiful and extremely tasty. Staff were attentive and friendly, not once did we feel rushed. A great place to go for good quality food. Have been here a lot over the years and never been disappointed ... thank you 😃👍🏼

an enjoyable dining experience, a tethered Chinese boat on the embankment. A friendly welcome awaits guests to this restaurant. a good choice of meals are available. A reasonable price to pay will suit most peoples pockets.
